How to Order


London in the late 1950s. The East End is ripe for redevelopment: corruption is rife and the old guard are on their way out. When Alf Marx, 'King of the East End', is sent down for life, a new breed of gangster appears and the battle for the East End begins. Chief Superintendent Frederick Troy is caught in the crossfire quite literally when he is hit by the blast from a car bomb. His girlfriend and his boss want him to retire, but then his past emerges in the form of an old mistress, and the things he did as a young man return to haunt him. It is time for Troy to return to the fray.
